Our stay in Abbotsleigh Cottage was wonderful. Situated in the village of Freshford, the cottage boasts the beautiful views and peace of the countryside, as well as being just a short train journey from Bath. Freshford station is only 10 minutes' walk away, and provides regular trains straight to Bath Spa.
The cottage itself was fantastic, we were welcomed with a plate of brownies and the log fire already burning! The kitchen is excellently equipped and the whole cottage is very tastefully decorated - lots of Farrow & Ball and The White Company. There is also a brand new television with Sky HD and DVD player. Even though there is only one bedroom, the sofa-bed was really comfortable and there was plenty of space.
All meals could easily be cooked in the kitchen, but Freshford also has some great country pubs. The Sunday roast at the Inn at Freshford, just 15 minutes' walk away, was a particular highlight!
We could not have asked for better hosts - Phil and Naomi were incredibly welcoming, and ensured that we were comfortable throughout our stay, even putting up fairy lights outside the cottage so that we would be able to find it in the dark. I would definitely recommend it for couples or a group of friends who are looking for a country retreat just a short distance from Bath. We are already thinking of dates to return.
